Our members are actively engaged in helping create a library in a local public school, sending needed supplies to Landstahl Medical Center in Germany, raising funds, with the additional assistance of a grant from the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution, so that a print of the American Flag, based on an original work of art, may be placed in each patient's room of the new veterans hospital to be built in New Orleans. Our chapter programs focus on both local and national historical events.
The Spirit of '76 Chapter National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution is the oldest and largest chapter in Louisiana.
The initial meeting of the founding members of the chapter was held at the old Howard Library at Lee Circle in New Orleans on April 1, 1895, and it was officially organized on May 2, 1895, and granted its charter on June 11 of that same year. The Spirit of '76 chapter formed just five years after the National Society was granted its charter by Congress.
